SouthParkCon: The Homer Tax: A Dark Evil Omen: The Homer Tax: A Dark Evil Omen: SouthParkCon: You thought I was serious? You can't be this dense.So answer my question: What real-world "excessive demands" on the part of the Democrats are you making this absurd example in comparison to? What is so heinous and offensive that total intransigence at every level and refusal even to discuss it is warranted? More to the point, how is it that every bill and proposal the Democrats have offered is somehow this offensive?The excessive demands of the left started with the individual mandate. You know, the idea championed by their own party 15 years ago as the free market alternative to socialized medicine, and put into practice on a state level by the same guy they just nominated to run for president.Well, yes, but I want SPC's answer. I want to know what he's driving at.I'd love to hear his answer too, but I'm afraid you're not going to get one...Sorry I had to go oppress some minorities while out to dinner with the wife and kids :).So let's go with Obama's health care plan for starters. A mandate with a penalty, and was found by the SCOTUS to be a Tax, contrary to what was peddled to the public by Obama himself. Now I would classify that as the "5%" that made the rest of it unacceptable to swallow. Obama would not relent, and it passed based on purely party lines, and then 2010 happened.I see the same fight coming up about immigration. Do I think that we should kick out everyone here illegally? No, that wouldn't be a realistic solution. Do I think we need to grant blanket amnesty? No, however I will more than likely be called a racist hate-monger because of that. Is there somewhere in the middle to meet? Sure. The problem is that much like what happened to Reagan, the President and those on the Left will push blanket Amnesty with some sort of additional security measure on the border, only to either deny funding to the security portion or something similar. I'll also be the fi ...
SouthParkCon: Serious Black: SouthParkCon: People are people, and you I should live together in harmony. While there are the Right wing kooks who disagree, the vast majority of Conservatives would agree. When the gay marriage debate shifted to a debate on civil rights, I saw that as a cheap ploy by the Left to equate people getting married to the Civil Rights movement. The fact is that no major players on the Right are saying that if your gay you have to go to a certain school, use a separate bathroom or any of the other Jim Crow laws that segregated our society for so long. It's ridiculous to try and link the two.You don't see the ability to publicly declare your love and commitment to the most important person in your life as a civil right? Maybe that's because you haven't been told that your relationship with your significant other is completely illegitimate and undeserving or unworthy of recognition by the world ever before. Of course, you don't have to take my word for it. What about, say, the word of the Supreme Court? I mean, it's not like they ever unanimously said that "Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival." Oh, wait, they already did! Never mind.The SCOTUS has taken up DOMA challenges and I would expect a ruling over the next few months, not sure which rulings your citing. Also if you base your self worth and commitment to your SO on what others say then that's kinda sad, whether your SO is another man or woman.
